Question: I have a Trigger Event that prompts for Month. I use a Dropdown Field such that the month numbers are in the Values, and the three character month names are the Display Names. At points in my chain I would like to access the Value as well as the Display Name chosen. How do I access the Value?

Answer: OneCloud does not have a native function to return the Display Name and Value when using a Runtime Input Trigger, only the Value is accessible through the Variables panel. See the suggested workaround below.

A workaround if both the Display Name and Value fields are required is to create a Value field entry in the Runtime Inputs Value field that contains the Display Name and Value in a JSON format:

Note that the format of the Value entry follows this convention:

{ "value":"01", "display":"Jan"}

Subsequent Commands can then utilize Variable transformation to extract both the Value and Display items from the JSON object:
